Sean O’Reilly is bilingual, family oriented, empathetic, and open-minded. A skilled facilitator with
integrity, he has gained experience from active participation in numerous PIPSC executives and working
groups. If elected as full-time Vice-President, he will ensure that all voices in the organization are heard
and that consensus is the norm. As a strong advocate for workers’ rights, Sean will work collaboratively
with all PIPSC members and continue to battle the employer on working conditions, pay, diversity,
equity, reconciliation, work-life balance and telework.

Voting for Sean O’Reilly as full-time Vice-President is a vote for intelligent, inclusive union leadership on
a human scale.
